Eaton returns, looks to go 6-0 vs. Mets

The Phillies and Mets aren't quite done.

After a convincing win by the Phils in Monday's opener -- led by Chase Utley and Pat Burrell -- the teams meet on Tuesday for the second of a four-game series. Philadelphia enters the game five games behind New York in the National League East.

Tuesday's starter, Adam Eaton, threw a 40-pitch rehab outing at Double-A Reading on Friday and will try to turn his year around as the season winds down.

The Mets counter with Tom Glavine, who endured his first rough outing in a month on Thursday, giving up six runs and 11 hits in five innings against the Padres. While hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park may not be the best of antidotes, the lefty held Philadelphia to one run in six innings there earlier this year, despite walking five batters.
